The path is visible, but not marked. It is an easy route on sandy ground, which allows you to reach the remains of the fortress anchored on a strangely shaped rocky mass and the Capigliolo tower, which rises to an altitude of 91m. The Genoese tower was once used to prevent Barbary attacks. A beautiful panorama on the beach of Liamone, the Gulf of Liscia.
